"/marist poll shows president barack obama leading mitt romney in ohio by six points among likely voters, and it shows president obama with a narrow lead in florida where the race stands at 49% to 47% among likely voters. we'll be talking more about ohio and the republican freak-out over polling analysis later in the program. right now joining me at the table we have michael moynihan cultural editor for "newsweek" and the daily beast ale li beei stevenson, columnist for "bloomberg view" associate professor at the ford school university of michigan and former chief economist at the obama labor department, and mom to the 3-week-old oliver, congratulations, that's really awesome. all right, it has been five days since sandy came ashore on the east coast as a post-tropical cyclone, the exact location of landfall didn't much matter because it was a 1,000-mile wide storm. at least 109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses ar

of obama and romney field offices in swing states. what you see, the theme here, the blue bars, there are many more obama offices around. full disclosure, my brother is an organizer on the campaign for five years. he started in 2007 and is now a state director in nevada. i see it through his eyes. there's a degree, when it functions best, there's a feedback. if you have people going to the doors every day and doing constant focus grouping and constant interactions with voters to see what's moving them, that's democracy at its core. if you are finding when you go to the doors, women age 20 to 35 really are worried about birth control and access to it. then, what you see is that moves the way the president talks. >> it's too cold. it's too cold. it's chilling. it's like the big ad corporations. what you want to do is get a feel for the electorate long before it's election time. then provide the kind of leadership to get people pumped up about your program in advance and have the field offices and your field operation come in as profound tools to get those voters to the polls. >>

are an outspoken supporter to mitt romney and a donor to a super pac. >> yes. >> i can understand how you feel about the presidential election because the person you were backing didn't win. when you look at the senate and congress and how congress is going to work with the president, how you interpret or understand the election results? >> one thing is there were 7 million white voters who voted for president obama the last time who didn't show up and vote. they weren't persuaded for mitt, but they did not vote for president obama this time. i think we have to take that into consideration. we need to recognize the president did a great job in energizing his base in not just get out the vote, but obama care for poor people, suspending deportation of hispanics for the hispanic voters and student loan promises for students. those are powerful incentives to bring out the vote that i think make a difference in an election. >> this sounds suspiciously like the makers takers analysis of the electorate. >> i hope not. >> these are all -- i just want you to zero in on what you mean by that? >> my prob

of mitt romney's health care group. tana, ozzie coats and lorella. she came to the united states as an undocumented immigrant when she was ten years old. >>> late tuesday night barack obama was re-elected to a second term as president of the united states. his victory was at the same time narrow and decisive. it was not just a victory for the president but a truly historic night for liberalism across the country. colorado legalized marijuana. maine, washington and maryland legalized gay marriage. the 113th congress will include the most female members ever and for the first time in history, women and minorities will hold a majority of the democratic party's house seats. in his victory speech president obama vowed to continue the work he began in his first term. >> america, i believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. i believe we can keep the promise of our founders. the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look l

with donors this week, portions of which were posted online by abc news mitt romney blamed his loss to president obama on what he calls gifts the president had given to core democratic constituencies like students, women, and latinos. >> what the president -- the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> just note that, you know, doesn't actually cost any money but side point. romney's framing of the president's campaign strategy is, of course, offensive but it is also not entirely inaccurate. the president did, indeed, deliver on some of the major policy priorities of those core democratic constituencies. mandatory insurance coverage for birth control, making student loans more affordable, and deferring action, as i said on young, undocumented immigrants among other things. romney calls those gifts, and in many cases a majority of americans would call them good policy. what republicans seem to be picking up on is key components

for news week and the daily beast. david from author of the e-book why romney lost. it makes me think you started working on it five years ago. it's great to have all of you here. you have been doing fantastic reporting about the security state and technology. tell me about the conditions under which the government can read my e-mail? i think the first thought we had when he saw this is what does the fbi have to do to get into your e-mail account? >> it's shocking. as a result of a series of weird supreme court decisions from the late '70s. the government doesn't have to meet that high of a standard. there's a 1986 law that governs federal access to electronic communications. while it requires a warrant for access to unopened e-mails, it permits a subpoena or a court order based on a weak showing of relevance to be used to access e-mails that have been opened, documents stored in the cloud and also e-mails that sat unopened for more than six months. in this case, it looks like a warrant was used to get at broadwell's e-mails. it seems like probably the attorney general should have had to

to bring about some type of accord. is that netanyahu suffers from the same problem that romney did. they see the world only from their perspective. and it's from their view and they don't see the great earth world. the greater world being what's the numbers and the population and the future. they're not prepared for it they're hunkered down. and israel can't continue to be hunkered down and survive because they're going to be outnumbered by -- >> they've been outnumbered for a long time and there's a lot of fear that the tumult they bring is creating a greater danger. >> iron dome was beautiful. that was president obama and the united states helped fund the iron dome. >> a missile defense sort of rocket defense weapons system that was able to shoot down rockets that were incoming. >> 85% accuracy at best. >> i want to talk more about this and what the u.s. government can do to bring about a two-state solution if that is the stated aim after this. with verizon. hurry in this saturday and sunday for great deals. like the lucid by lg, free. or the galaxy nexus by samsung, free. this w

, pushed by romney in massachusetts that had this public option, which i had pushed, but, you know, alongside a competitive market exchange structure. and that really structured the debate. so, you know, we should be clear that the compromises that occurred were really within the democratic party in a certain sense. there was hope to get republicans onboard, but in the end, only one republican in the house that supported the legislation. they weren't able to get any senate republicans despite the fact they had adopted an approach that borrowed heavily from republicans. so that was the really crucial moment. and my own view about it is that, you know, the public option was essential to kind of keeping the debate focused overall on how consolidated the insurance industry had become about the need to contain costs, about the fact that medicare does a good job controlling costs and covers people. now, i got a lot of flak from both sides, i mean, this is -- and i don't consider that a sign of virtue. if both sides attack you, you must be in the right place. i understood why that was. bu
